Required Third Party Tools

The following third party tools are required for successfully building KDE on OSX. Also, here are some good tips for installing from source.

  • XCode
  • AGG
  • giflib or libungif
  • libart_lgpl
  • libidn
  • libjpeg
  • libmng
  • libpng
  • libxml2
  • libxslt
  • libusb
  • OpenEXR
  • PCRE
  • Strigi
  • shared-mime-info
  • pkgconfig
  • subversion (to check out the kde sources)
  • dbus

Verify Compiler Version

  • Fink: If your Distribution line in /sw/etc/fink.conf is 10.4-transitional, instead of 10.4, make sure you run sudo gcc_select 3.3 before proceeding with any compiling, or you will end up with binary-incompatible c++ code!
  • Manual: run sudo gcc_select 4.0 if you want to be compatible with the pre-made installers.

Qt/Mac Open Source Edition

Get the Qt/Mac source code from http://qt.nokia.com/downloads/qt-for-open-source-cpp-development-on-mac-os-x

curl http://get.qt.nokia.com/qt/source/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.6.3.tar.gz -O tar xfz qt-everywhere-opensource-src-*.tar.gz

Patches are required for a successful build. Download the qt-copy patches through KDE's svn: svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/qt-copy/patches/ and apply the patches: cd qt-mac-opensource-4* for patch in /path/to/patches/*.diff; do patch -p0 < $patch; done Note: when applying patches you will get errors when processing x11 specific files (i.e. files that match the pattern *_x11.{h,cpp}), simply skip those patches.

And finally, compile qt-mac: ./configure -prefix /opt/qt4 -qt-gif make all install

Please note: The Qt/Mac binary edition available from ftp.trolltech.com will not work, because it does not contain the QtDBus module! (tested with 4.3.2)

CMake

Get the latest CMake from http://www.cmake.org/cmake/resources/software.html#latest and install:

curl http://www.cmake.org/files/v2.8/cmake-2.8.2.tar.gz -O tar xfz cmake-*.tar.gz cd cmake-* ./configure --prefix=/opt/kde4-deps make all sudo make install

Setting Up Your Build Environment

Variable must be set to build KDE successfully, and are noted below

  • Note: Replace /opt/kde4-deps with the location of your 3rd-party tools, and add your cmake location if you compiled from source

export PATH="/opt/qt4/bin:/opt/kde4/bin:/opt/kde4-deps/bin:$PATH" export CMAKE_LIBRARY_PATH="/opt/kde4-deps/lib" export CMAKE_INCLUDE_PATH="/opt/kde4-deps/include" export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/opt/qt4/lib/"

Building kdelibs

kdelibs must be checked out of svn locally to be built: cd ~/kde4.build svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdelibs And then compiled by performing the following: mkdir kdelibs.build cd kdelibs.build cmake ../kdelibs -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/kde4 make all install

Troubleshooting

If kdelibs fails to compile successfully, check the build status for the latest Nightly Builds and Continuous Builds at http://public.kitware.com/dashboard.php?name=kde

Information about getting and compiling the dependencies can be found at Getting_Started/Build/KDE4 and Getting_Started/Build/KDE4/Prerequisites (pages are Linux focused, but can be useful)


Using Binaries

If you're interested in just checking things out, binaries for kdelibs and parts of KDE in general are available at Projects/KDE on Mac OS X and are generated semi-regularly.

Further Reading

For more general information on using CMake, see the CMake Tutorial.
